Adrian is passionate about building effective teams and great products. He co-founded Quietstars to help companies do that using Lean, Agile and UX practices.

You'll find him working with startup and product development teams — doing everything from coaching & teaching to hands on UX & dev work. With more than 15 years experience working with startups, established businesses and agencies Adrian is an active member of the Agile and Lean UX communities. He's also a mentor for Lean Startup Machine and speakup.io.

You'll often find him ranting in a corner of the bar about how agile, business and user experience folk need to play nice together. Be kind and buy him whisky.

comment Psychological pricing vs. being fair?
If you've not got the numbers then you never going to know what's going to work best. So best to focus the energy spent on figuring out exactly the right copy for the sign up page to the parts of the service that are getting you more people ;-)

comment Why does the Facebook registration page require you to retype the email and NOT the password?
I don't personally think it's worth the -1 - but Quora doesn't let you see the material without logging in.
